Kelsey and Ryan’s Early Mountain Vineyard Wedding with Amore Event Co. was a day we will never forget! These high school sweethearts are one of our favorite couples- with their kind and welcoming personalities and comfortable love- it’s no surprise that we consider them friends more than “clients”.
Typically when you read “florals by groom’s mother” on the pre-wedding questionnaire you don’t imagine the amazing one-woman show we walked into when we arrived at the venue. Ryan’s mom is apparently a woman of many, many talents because other than the “personals” (aka bouquets, boutonnieres, and flower girl crown) she took on ALL of the florals for the day. There were stunning arrangements everywhere we looked- table arrangements, custom centerpieces, giant ceremony arrangements, and extra florals arranged like a flower market just to make the day more beautiful (if that was even possible). The weather was dreamy and the mood was relaxed and excited.
After loving each other for almost 8 years, Kelsey and Ryan were so ready for this day. Their first look was sweet and personal and Ryan couldn’t take his eyes off his stunning bride-to-be. Kelsey literally thought of every detail. The reception hall at Early Mountain has never looked so radiant. Kelsey made the day her own with personalized touches like her hand-lettered program chalkboard, name cards, and table cards. We were so excited that K + R chose one of our favorite bakers to make their amazing cake- we talked about it so much that one of the groomsmen served Aaron and me a slice himself at the end of the night. What a gentleman! Kelsey and Ryan were surrounded by the most thoughtful friends and family who invited us into the day with such kindness.
Kelsey and Ryan, you guys know that we adore you both! Thank you, thank you for welcoming us into your lives, especially during such a special season! We were honored to capture your day and celebrate your marriage! We can’t wait to see the beautiful things the two of you do as a married couple. Your love is beautiful and we hope you enjoy a few of our favorites as much as we enjoyed capturing them!
